Imperfectly Raw - Day 36 - Thursday, September 23, 2021
Breakfast: 28 oz water, Coffee, Lemon Ginger Blast
Lunch: Smoothies. I froze enough bananas for the next three days of smoothies because the bananas were getting too ripe. Smoothies for two recipe today: 2 bananas, 2 handfuls of spinach 8 oz fresh strawberries minus a few bad ones, frozen strawberries and bananas mix, 1/4 cup hemp see hearts, 2 small cartons strawberry yogurt, 1/4 cup peanut butter powder, coconut water, and water.
I bought two fresh coconuts from Walmart. One was bad and one was perfect. I used the coconut water from the good one in the smoothie and the coconut meat is for snacking.
I made my favorite salad dressing to use on my salads. It is the famous Bragg's Vianagrette. The recipe: 1/2 cup Bragg's apple cider vinegar, 1/3 cup olive oil, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tsp Bragg's liquid aminos, and some herbs. I used Mrs. Dash Table Blend this time.
My snack today was some coconut, an apple and a bag of peanuts.
I don't want to talk about what I ate the rest of the day. I was tired after working at the boutique today and Travis was eating out with Karl, so I basically just carbed out at home by myself. I warmed up the rest of the soup, but I only ate a little of it. Instead I ate rolls with butter and baked potato with butter.
My new year's resolution was to read the books on the New York Times best seller list and to write a book report on each one when I finish. I am behind on my book reports! I don't know whether to catch up or just go forward from where I am now. Here are the books I have read but have not written a report...Outliers, Thinking Fast and Slow, Just Mercy, White Fragility, Born a Crime, and Untamed. Even though my reports are short and simple, they take some time and thought. I should do them. Right now I am reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. I bought it on Kindle and Audible. It is the most amazing true non-fiction story. Everyone needs to know about Henrietta Lacks, because she has had a big impact on your life whether you know it or not!
